house. so every reason to believe congress will grind to a halt under the threat that president obama will rewrite it anywhere. >> could you argue that it's happening right now as you try to work out differences between the various perspectives on a piece of legislation those that may be asked to get something they think the president agrees with them on mike say why should i give up on that because they n get a change done unilaterally by the executive branch. >> you could imagine such a negotiation about the effective date of obamacare. after the statute is passed via decide what the congress wants. gridlock is almost quite a predictable result. >> professor turley, the constitution of the breed of power isn't simply about stopping one branch of government from usurping another. it's about protecting the liberty of american of concentrated government power. how does the modification of act of congress affect the balance of power between the political branches into the liberty interest of the american people? >> the danger is quite severe. the problem with the president is doing is t

we have seen under bush or obama. surveillance of the bush administration and things like that. i must say that everything we are talking about today is laughable in my opinion in the context of these problems. i'm particularly struck by the overwhelming hypocrisy of the claim that the president, in interpreting the law, in refusing to interpret the law in a way that would drive a stake through the law is not enforcing the law and demanding that he enforce the law on the dates in a way that the person making that demand would destroy the law is not taking care of the -- i would say it is the other way around. it is the duty of the president to interpret the law within the boundaries that he has in a way that makes practical implementations of the law. the fact that people want to sabotage the law and want it not to work and say hey, he is not obeying this particular sentence in order to make the law work, talk about hypocrisy. >> let me ask a question. have you made my -- having made my statement. judge cavanagh, the second -- the district of columbia circuit, recently in a decisi

coverage for five people. $5,000.in my family for i had a $5,000 deductible. under obama care, you can have a high deductible and still pay $20,000. it mandated everything that guos into it. the problem is that the insurance companies are never going to offer those policies again because they're told within a year, even if you delay it for a year, within a year, forced to buy e the new policies which are more expensive. you sell bread, you sell for $1 a loaf. they say we're going force verybody to buy it for $2 a loaf. you going to continue to sell it for $1 a loaf? do that. going to young healthy people were not buying insurance because it was oo expensive under the old system. we made it more expensive. you think more or less people will buy it? a year, it may spiral out of control where premiums come back before the premiums ions and the go up to such a degree that the system just collapses of its own weight. there may come a time that the democrats beg us to fix it. the only reason they may not is the president seems to think that he's a monarch and he seems to think that he can ju

, wanting to go to 75, and under obama care, this arbitrary selection of 50 now defining a large corporation doesn't fit with the entrepreneurial spirit. so in the same, you know, what do you think, yes or no, do you think we should increase beyond 50 the number of ftes that would trigger the affordable care act? i don't know if it's 100 or 150, but do you believe that 50 is too low and stifles job creation, and, therefore, we as congress should increase it to a number higher than 50? >> i think the bright line test of a certain number of people is the wrong test. you need a facts and circumstances test on who has day-to-day control. if you increase it to 50, the same thing that happens beyond -- that happens at 50 will happen beyond 50, whether there's 75, 100, 150 or 500. >> ms. bogardos? >> as for the 50-employee rule, i agree increasing it would alleviate a number of issues, but there would have to be a change to the statute itself. >> mr. winstanley? >> i think the challenge comes in that every industry can't be put in the same box. i think in the evaluation of, really, any

secrets doctrine for the enforcement of constitutional rights and a surveillance under bush and obama and the patriot act, warrantless surveillance in the bush administration and things like that. i must say that everything we are talking about today is laughable in my opinion in the context of these problems. i am particularly struck by the overwhelming hypocrisy of the claim that the president in interpreting the law and in refusing to interpret the law in the way that would drive a stake through the law is not enforced. it's amending that he and force the law in the way that the person making the demand is not taking care and must be painfully executed. it's to the president to interpret the law within the boundaries that he has in a way that makes practical implementation of the law to fluctuate the will of the congress and the fact people that want to sabotage the wall and for if no it not to work ane no bones about it save he is not obeying this particular sentence in order to make it work. talk about hypocrisy. let me ask a question. have you made this statement i want to

. it's clear it's under attack and these beneficiaries are feeling the effects of $300 billion cuts in obama care. and with plan cancellation notices sent to tens of thousands of our country's seniors, some of the most vulnerable citizens are faced with this uncertainty. individuals are losing coverage they are happy with and the doctors with which they are comfortable. and this is a tragedy. it's a tragedy of the law. a bill that was rushed through congress without any serious debate, strictly partisan vote is now directly impacting people's lives and their personal healthcare decisions. >> let me ask would you please explain to the committee the reality for those potentially millions of people, seniors who lose coverage over the next few years, especially when it comes to a reduction in financial security and benefits? >> i think this is a very real possibility and something i'm deeply concerned about as you know. it is one thing to mandate that a medicare advantage plan have benefits and offer that. it's another for it to be in existence so they can take advantage of it. money trump

under section 1321 and as the obama administration has acknowledged in the regulation. >> professor rosenkranz comes on the fenders have asserted that the actions were an exercise of prosecutorial discretion. are these assertions correct or is there a fundamental difference between the prosecutorial discretion and many of the president's unilateral actions? >> there are many cases i agree with the professor turley to prosecutorial discretion is one thing but the wholesale suspension of the law is something else and that is what happened under obamacare. likewise on the immigration context of a case-by-case prosecutorial discretion is one thing but if they get policy that will apply to 1.8 million people, that is quite something different. this is a scale of decision-making that isn't in the traditional conception of the prosecutorial discretion. >> the president has taken it a step further and has actually given legal documents to the people in that circumstance well beyond simply deciding not to leave them there and not prosecute them but actually enable the violation by giving the

presidential power under both president bush and president obama. we have what many was called an imperial president model. with that trend, we also have the continued rise of the fourth branch. we have agencies that are now quite large that issue regulations -- the supreme court said that agencies could define their own jurisdiction. >> i have a couple more questions to ask. mr. cannon, you have argued that the president is going to spend billions of dollars congress did not authorize, provide premium assistance, tax credits and subsidies on federally run health care exchanges. can you walk me through why the president's plan to provide premium assistance is indeed illegal? >> we call those tax credits because that is what the statute calls them. they are government subsidies. the statute is clear. it is consistent. it said that those premium assistance tax credits would be available only to people who purchase health insurance through an exchange established by the state under section 1311. the phrase is mentioned several times explicitly. the statute is very tightly worded. it makes cle
